I'm kinda new to the whole build it yourself, and I was just gonna upgrade a couple parts and now it has turnt into a whole new system, so got a few questions, but first (here is what I ordered so far, can still be canceled since I just ordered most of it if theres a reason to cancel and change something).
Mother Board: ASUS P7P55D-E Pro LGA 1156 Intel P55 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131621
CPU: Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield 2.66GHz LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Processor
Ram: G.SKILL ECO Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
Video Card: GTX 480
Main purpose of the system is for gaming. I'm now planning to order a 2nd gtx 480 but I need some advice.
a.) I know nothing about 64-bit and what makes a system 64-bit. Will this system be 64-bit? assuming I install a 64-bit version of windows of course?
b.) What power supply should I get? My current OCZ 600watt power supply surely will not handle 2 gtx 480 gpu's
In case you need to know what else will be on the system power wise, there will be a sound card, a dvd burner a blu-ray burner, nvidia 3d glasses/rf emitter, 3 monitors (dont think monitors consume power from computer but just in case). and other then that I can't think of anything besides 6-8 usb items that could be plugged in at any given time.
c.) Cooling.... Here is what I currently have:
case: ENERMAX Uber Chakra ECA5001B Black Aluminum / Steel Trim w/250mm Intake/Exhaust LED Monster Fan ATX Full Tower Case w/Front I/O 1 eSATA, 4 USB2.0, Audio I/O http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811124121
rear fan: 120mm 6000 rpm
front fan: the one that came with the case
side fan: the one that came with the case
cpu cooler: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835186134
Thanks for any help in advance.
